ROSEBURG, Ore.-- Roseburg Public Schools announced Monday, Nov. 30 that all grades will continue with remote learning through the end of the calendar year.

Originally, the district was hoping to at least get grades K through 3 back in the classroom on Dec. 7. However, with Douglas County seeing a rise in cases, the district said they're moving that date back to Jan. 7. On that day, 4th and 5th grade could also see students return to the classroom, but it all depends on the metrics. 

According to district officials, the county is at a 5.2% positive test rate. This is above the threshold for in-person learning set by the Oregon Department of Education. Douglas county saw 276 new cases over a week's time.

District officials also said they are hoping to transition grades 6 through 12 to hybrid learning by the start of second semester.
